NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for daily.conf (netbsd section 5)

DAILY(5)			     BSD File Formats Manual				 DAILY(5)

     daily, daily.conf -- daily maintenance

     The /etc/daily script is run, by default, every night on a NetBSD system.	The
     /etc/daily.conf file specifies which of the standard daily services are performed.

     The variables described below can be set to ``YES'' or ``NO'' in the /etc/daily.conf file.
     Most default to ``YES'', but not all.  Check the /etc/defaults/daily.conf file if you are in
     doubt.  (Note that you should never edit /etc/defaults/daily.conf directly, as it is often
     replaced during system upgrades.)

     find_core			This runs find(1) over the entire local filesystem, looking for
				core files.

     run_msgs			This runs msgs(1) with the -c argument.

     expire_news		This runs the /etc/expire.news script.

     purge_accounting		This ages accounting files in /var/account.

     run_calendar		This runs calendar(1) with the -a argument.

     check_disks		This uses the df(1) and dump(8) to give disk status, and also
				reports failed raid(4) components.

     show_remote_fs		In check_disks, show remote file systems, which are not reported
				on by default.

     check_mailq		This runs mailq(1).

     check_network		This runs netstat(1) with the -i argument, and also checks the
				rwhod(8) database, and runs ruptime(1) if there are hosts in

     full_netstat		By default, check_network outputs a summarized version of the
				netstat(1) report.  If a full version of the output run with the
				-inv options is desired, set this variable.

     run_fsck			This runs fsck(8) with the -n option.

     run_rdist			This runs rdist(1) with /etc/Distfile.

     run_security		This runs the /etc/security script looking for possible security
				problems with the system.

     run_skeyaudit		Runs the skeyaudit(1) program to check the S/Key database and
				informs users of S/Keys that are about to expire.

     run_makemandb		If the /etc/man.conf file exists, runs the makemandb(8) utility
				to update the man.db database for use by apropos(1).

     fetch_pkg_vulnerabilities	Refreshes the local database of package vulnerabilities.  See the
				settings in security.conf(5) for details on the actual package

     The variables described below can be set to modify the tests:

     find_core_ignore_fstypes	Lists filesystem types to ignore during the find_core phase.
				Prefixing the type with a '!' inverts the match.  For example,
				'procfs !local' will ignore 'procfs' type filesystems and
				filesystems that are not 'local'.

     find_core_ignore_paths	Lists paths to ignore during the find_core phase.  For example,
				'/export' will not descend into any directories under the
				'/export' hierarchy. This, on a file server, allows to skip user
				data while still scanning system files.

     run_fsck_flags		Extra options to be passed to fsck(8) if run_fsck is enabled.

     send_empty_security	If set, the report generated by the run_security phase will
				always be sent, even if it is empty.

     pkgdb_dir			DEPRECATED.  Please set PKGDB_DIR in pkg_install.conf(5) instead.

				If defined, points to the location of the packages database.
				Defaults to /var/db/pkg.

     /etc/daily 	       daily maintenance script
     /etc/daily.conf	       daily maintenance configuration
     /etc/defaults/daily.conf  default settings, overridden by /etc/daily.conf
     /etc/daily.local	       local site additions to /etc/daily

     monthly(5), security.conf(5), weekly(5)

     The /etc/daily.conf file appeared in NetBSD 1.3.
